AMRITA MANTHAN

THE word ‘Amrit’ means nectar, and ‘manthan’ means churning:

By drinking nectar one becomes immortal. So say Puranas.

Here is the story of Amrita Manthan.

Rishi Kashyapa had two wives. They were called Diti and Aditi.

The children of Diti were the Asuras or demons, and those of Aditi were the Devas or angels. The demons and angels were thus cousins.

The cousins always quarreled.

Once, Rishi Durvasa cursed the Devas for showing him disrespects.

Because of the curse; the Devas were defeated by the demons in help.
